Great Charlie Munger Video at Caltech
Below is a link to Berkshire Vice Chairman Charlie Munger talking about some of his favorite topics including (un)common sense, worldly wisdom, Jacobian inversion, employing a "mental model" framework for solving problems, understanding a few big ideas in a variety of disciplines, investing, why the Chinese have genetic advantages vs. the average American, and "other".
Always funny. Always insightful. Always worth your time.
As an aside, kind of strange to see Whitney Tilson and David Winters ask questions given this was an event for Caltech students.

If you have not read poor Charlie's Almanack , I highly recommend it. You are missing a great opportunity to expand the way you think about complex issues and investment risks/return scenarios.
